The ancestral home of the Häs family was in the German state of Bavaria. Häs is a local name for a person who lived in Bavaria, where the family was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history.

Häs Early Origins



The surname Häs was first found in Bavaria, where the family was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The name originates from the German word "Hase," meaning rabbit. Chronicles first mention Ruediger Hase in Bavaria in 1173, Henrich Hase, the owner of the inn "zum Hase" in Basel in 1293, and the name Hass appears in Prague in 1363.

The Great Migration



Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Häs or a variant listed above:
